A massive thank you to all the guys at @etpi_dubai@jumeirahgolfest for allowing me to use one of the best facilities in the world the last two months!! It’s been a brilliant place to get my game in great shape for a big season a head and couldn’t have done it without their help.
Closing out camp appropriately... walking away humbled, inspired, motivated and enriched...
Pumped & honored to be part of such an amazing group of people I can call team mates. As our manager said, in a world with so much separation at the moment, “how awesome is it to be apart of something that brings people together” from different backgrounds/ strengths/ sports under one umbrella as the start of something I feel will be phenomenal with the first year of the Sunnto Multisport Team composed of triathletes, ultra runners & Xterria athletes all together!! Thank you 🙏@suunto & @team_suunto its going to be a beauty! #suuntocamp

Flick told me that today was our spa day, but instead of getting our nails done we did hill repeats until we were on the verge of blacking out.
Thanks for the memories and the sore bum, @fjoyce81. Missing #suuntocamp already!

Never stop dreaming and setting goals for yourself!! #freedomtomeis#theroadback#friendswhoarefamily

So I've gone a bit quiet on here for a while. I thought I just missed one of my 365 happy days and thought I'd catch up, then another day went by, and another - I hadn't missed them, they just weren't there.
This was a rough week for me. Nothing special happened, no one close to me died - and it was also the lowest I've felt in years. I did some stupid things and I broke.
Things came to a head on Friday night and when Saturday dawned it brought some decisions with it that I know are right for me and the ones I love. There are mental health issues I have to deal with that I've been numbing by some of the things I was doing.
So I'm cutting way back here. I love this app and this community, I find so much positivity here. You just have to watch yourself for the rest that comes with it. I've shared some photos of the week and the people that have made smile. You're bloody great the lot of you.
You all are. Im not stopping having 365 happy days - im just reminding myself that happiness doesn't revolve around what you post and what you show to others. Happiness has to be felt within. I lost that and I was ignoring it. Like I said, there's work I need to do on myself and the people I love. So no more daily posts here. Maybe I'll just be a lurker for a while 😊 love to all those who love and to those who don't feel it right now. Mama Ru has a point, you know. Love yourself x
Surrounded by only good energy today, it was contagious 🙌.... from catching a lift with legend strangers, climbing mountains with team mates, to sharing a beer at the end of the night! That good energy is life! @team_suunto@suunto#life 🤘🤙

Så hur känns nu kroppen såhär 8 månader efter min tredje förlossning? Bättre. Styrkan börjar komma tillbaka. Eller rättare sagt jag jobbar förbaskat hårt för att bli stark igen. Ingenting kommer gratis längre. Jag har senaste 3 månaderna tränat våra fyspass och promenerat. Bålen är mkt stabilare, bättre tryck i ben och armar och explosiviteten smyger sig sakta på. Bor fortfarande i tights och stretch (och har en helt överfull garderob med för små kläder) men ändå... Börjar iallafall bli taggad igen. Vilket är fett.
Day 6. Last gym workout in NJ. Looking forward to down time next week in Cali with 2 out of 3 of my favorite people (it really sucks that high school spring break != college spring break because we would take the eldest spawn too). Excited to rest well and train hard for the week leading up to Pans.
Today I increased the sprint portion of my intervals from 30s to 45s and added 0.2 miles to my 20 minute distance. Heart rate was mostly in the 150s/low 160s during active rest. This week for my lifts I increased my reps per set from 10x to 15x. Today I added 2 more sets back on and finished with 90 reps of each exercise. I was really surprised since yesterday's 60 felt like death. Maybe my body is starting to remember what it is capable of.
Feeling pretty great on the mats and in the gym. Excited to see how that will translate to competition. Very proud to be on my way back to my weight class. I competed at Super Heavy for Pan No Gi, now I'm at Medium Heavy. Really want to see myself back at Light this year. I will post progress pics and measurements Saturday and then I'll be offline for the most part until we return on 3/25.
Day 5. Amazing what a decent night's sleep (6 hours!) can do for your energy level during a workout. Sprints felt really good today, so it's probably time to make them harder (+15s to the sprint portion and no change to the active rest/jog). Since I hit 100 reps yesterday today reset to lower total reps and higher reps per set. Holy hell batman. 15x is so much harder than 10x. Those last 5 burn. They require just as much mental effort to get through as they require physical effort to get through.
When I first started martial arts it took me at least a year before I wasn't comparing myself to everyone else. I am naturally competitive (shocker) but when I finally learned to compare me to me it made me feel better in every way - especially spiritually. I am now struggling with the problem of comparing me to me. Before I got pregnant I was in the very best shape of my life. A high risk pregnancy and massive weight gain put me in a slightly better fat suit compared to when I started this journey in December 2011.
Today during my sprints I always recovered during active rest to a heart rate in the 160s. This is by far my best post-baby cardio shape. But that nagging voice in the back of my head reminding me that I was recovering to the 130s-140s pre baby is a real party pooper. So today I will remember to compare me now to me on the day I delivered. I will celebrate every victory like I did when I lost 100 lbs in 2011/2012. And I will tell that voice to go fuck itself.
